notices. When they speak, other guys listen. Guys want to hang out with them.
Women want to go out with them. They’re Alpha Males.
An Alpha Male has certain unmistakable
characteristics. A natural leader, he is a pack builder. He leads, provides for
and protects his pack (his woman, buddies, teammates, and so on).
The changing world presents a continuing opportunity for an Alpha Male.
Where other guys see change as crisis, an Alpha Male is in his natural element. He
continually observes cause and effect, and turns every opportunity to the
advantage of his pack. He loves to win and is good at it.
He is unconcerned with his image -- he just goes about winning the game at hand,
whatever it may be, and others follow. They copy his style, speech and look. An
Alpha Male never copies anyone else.
Often laid-back until there is a
need for action, an Alpha Male is fearless in a necessary fight. And he is the
best leader of men there is.
But there are some things an Alpha Male
never does. This is a list of the 10 dead-certain giveaways that you are not an
10) You let the lady pay for the bill.
An Alpha Male provides for his pack. If she tries to contribute to this, he
calmly takes the check and says, "I'll handle this." End of discussion.
9) You never says sorry even when you're wrong.
An Alpha Male has no hang-ups. He simply says, "I was wrong. I apologize." And he
rectifies the problem if possible.
8) You suck up to leaders and seek their approval.
An Alpha Male doesn't suck up to anyone. He is the leader.
7) You gossip.
About your boss. About your buddies. About your girlfriend. You don't mind
pointing out other people's failings and weaknesses and having a
good laugh. An Alpha Male never betrays his pack. He doesn't need to build
himself up by tearing others down.
6) You panic in a crisis.
An Alpha Male's natural
element is change. Rapid change is
simply an interesting challenge to him. He goes into a special kind of ice-cold,
almost detached state, quickly sums up the situation, does due diligence if time
allows for it, and acts immediately and decisively based on prior experience if
there is no time to spare.
5) You act before you think.
An Alpha Male may act with lightning speed, but he always thinks before he
acts. He never runs to the corner and goes off in all directions like a type-A
4) You blame others.
An Alpha Male takes responsibility for his own actions.
3) You Lie.
To your boss. To your buddies. To your girlfriend. An Alpha Male isn't a
liar. He's a stand-up
guy; he shoots straight. He doesn't have to slither out of a mess he got himself
into. He does what's right, and lets the chips fall where they may.
2) You betray others to get ahead.
An Alpha Male never betrays a member of his pack.
1) You bully people.
An Alpha Male takes on a real fight when it is necessary, and only if it is
necessary (Alphas are not "scrappers"), but he won't think twice taking on
someone far bigger/stronger/better-situated than he is if the matter being
decided is serious. And due to his fierce drive, chances are good he will win.
